ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hazel Ketchum plays many instruments and sings. Hazel is best known as a lute player, singer, and member of the early music group Sonus. They have three CD's released on a major label with great reviews and all the glory that comes with being a Medieval musician. Hazel plays for children quite bit these days because she wants an audience that sings and claps along and occasionally has chocolate donut icing on their face. Hazel also teaches music at her studio Hungry Monk Music in Charleston, SC.

She teaches piano, guitar, voice and songwriting. In the summers you might find Hazel in the Cuyahoga National Park in Ohio where she has been Artist in Residence for the past two years. While in the park Hazel plays concerts for campers, formal house concerts, outdoor concerts and at the train station in Peninsula, OH. Hazel has two children - Althea who is 9 and Jeremy 4. Althea is featured on "Big as the World" singing "Did you feed my cow", "Walked around the corner" and the last "Goodnight to you all". Several of Althea's friends are also singing on the CD and they all happened to go the same Montessori School when they were little so we call them the Palmetto Montessori Singers. Chandler Marburg owns and teaches at the school and sings haromony on "Big as the World". Jeremy was too little to sing on this CD, but is already planning his solo for the next CD. "Big as the World" was intended to provide music to sing with, ride in the car, clean house, dance and sleep to. Hazel's concerts feature the talented audiences singing, dancing and doing their favorite "Magic Carpet" verses.

CD Baby


One measure of quality childrens' music is when it's not painfully obvious that the audience is intended for 5 and younger. Talking animals, circus contraptions, slide whistles, and helium-squeaking voices appear nowhere in this tasteful, thoroughly warm and adult-friendly folk pop album. Starting with the hearty, rich tone of guitar, proud female vocals reminiscent of artists like Shawn Colvin and topics that don't talk down to kids make this diamond in the rough a must-have. And with some special, young guests assisting Ketchum now and then, no one in your family will have to skip tracks.

Great kids' music that adults will appreciate.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL CD!!
My (barely) 3 year old niece LOVES this CD. She asks for it to be played constantly and she sings along with all of the songs. Thanks for creating something that both children and adults can listen to & enjoy!

This is heartfelt, amazing music that will appeal to adults as well as children!
Big As The World is a very enjoyable collection of songs. The music evokes a childlike simplicity through beautiful (mostly acoustic) arrangements. There is a copious amount of music on this disc--mixing both originals as well as classic cover songs. The musicians are obviously having fun here, and are each deft on their respective instrument. BUY THIS CD NOW!
